Brenau's Bachman Becomes Nation's Youngest Head Coach

Brenau University Athletic Director Mike Lochstampfor has announced the hiring of Blaire Bachman as the next Golden Tigers swim coach. Bachman graduated in 2009 from Georgia College and State University, where she single handedly organized, coached and publicized the GCSU Swim Cats Swim Club. 

Blaire has been involved with Brenau since 2001, serving as a lifeguard and swim instructor, where she conducted private and semi-private lessons for all ages. She has also been involved with the Lanier Aquatics Swim Club on a seasonal basis since 2006 as she assisted the head coach in creating and implementing workouts for competitive swimmers, managed meet preparation and event lineups, and communicated regularly with parents as to progress of their swimmers.
Bachman started her collegiate swim career at University of the Cumberlands, KY where she was a scholastic All-American. In addition to her work with the GCSU Swim Club, she was also President of the GCSU Sports Council. She was most recently involved with The Zimmerman Agency in Tallahassee, Fla. as an Account Coordinator and Public Relations Specialist where she developed and maintained relationships with industry and media contacts to foster a positive image of Firehouse Subs and Tobacco Free Florida.
"I am thrilled to have Blaire as the new head coach for Brenau University's swim team. She has a tremendous passion for swimming and has always been involved with the sport. I believe she will be able to grow the program and she has some great ideas that will result in our program becoming more visible, both locally and at the national level. There's no doubt she will have a significant impact on our program and I look forward to seeing it thrive under her direction," said Lochstampfor.
"The opportunity to coach the Golden Tigers swim team is a true honor and one that represents my lifetime love for the sport," said Bachman. "I am looking forward to a great season and helping to build a successful program."
